Flash Mob

I’ve seen Flash Mob’s around on You Tube, Facebook, and various places online, but none in real life.  I watched this one yesterday, and it really got to me.  I think the reason why is because of the ordinary-ness of the setting.  Just a plain old food court.  People are just sitting at a mall, lost in their conversation and their medium Diet Cokes, eating fries and burgers.  Suddenly, a soprano voice rings out, and everyone stops and stares.  A baratone voice joins her, and in a few minutes, hundreds are singing the Halleiluia Chorus, surrounding the ordinary people at the mall.

Majestic meets ordinary.  Surprise awakens mundane.  Praise lifts heads and hearts to worship…at a mall food court.  I can’t watch these videos without bawling like a baby, so I won’t watch it with you, but I thought I’d share it here.

I think the reason that it strikes so deeply in me, is because I know that I am called to be that voice in the figurative sense.  If I were to sing out for real in a food court, people wouldn’t tear up, they’d run away!  But, I can try to sing out with my writing.  I can sing out by loving people in extraordinary ways.

How about you?  How are you singing out?
